Starting a Bed and Breakfast – In Your Future?

May 19th, 2011 by Janet Wolf


The B&B Team’s next stop for learning is in Newcastle Maine and the Newcastle Inn Bed & Breakfast. The mid coast of Maine in June is magical. It is that time of year when spring has definitely sprung and summer is peeking through with promise. What better time or place to visit, stay and gain knowledge of the wonderful world of innkeeping.

Newcastle and Damariscotta are known as the Twin Villages. They both flank the shores of the salty Damariscotta River with a bridge that brings them together. Our host Inn is nestled on the shore and offers guests restful river views from a screened porch and open deck. The hospitality and charm of the Newcastle Inn is the perfect atmosphere for learning.

 Food for thought is a good thing but so is food for body and soul. Our host innkeeper Julie’s hearty breakfasts will help us jump start each morning.  Julie has recommended two restaurants in the area for our Friday and Saturday evenings. All meals are included and we love finding local favorites to share with our seminar attendees.

King Eider’s Pub is the choice for Friday. They received the 2010 Down East Reader’s Choice for Best Lunch in Maine. I’m sure the accolades will transfer to dinner. I hear Crab Cakes and Fish and Chips calling me.

 Damariscotta River Grill is our choice spot for Saturday. The chef owned restaurant offers upscale, regional comfort food. They also feature local art called ‘Art of the Grill’ which is a great way to support the art community as well as add to the dining experience.

So come on Down East Maine and join us.  We are certain you will leave with an understanding of the steps you will need in starting a bed and breakfast.  For more information and food for thought about our seminars visit our website. Our goal is to ensure that your goals are met as you work through the seminar process and beyond.
